Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

I replaced my rear wheel. The freewheel styled wheel had busted 3 spokes. It was dished for multi-gears. The broken spokes, ironically, were on the pedal chain side.
I put on a coaster brake wheel I had in the inventory. It is a skinnier 26x1 3/8, but it is not dished.
If I have spoke problems with this coaster wheel, I will get it relaced with bigger spokes or buy a wheel built for a tandem or industrial bike. I don't have much time for removing gears to replace spokes and truing wheels.
